That would be great if if color chips could be put next to
keyword values...."it depends on HTML displaying"....I understanding
that to mean that some user agent might not be able to render the
color....therefore a color chip that is not understood by user agent  would 
be empty or....not there?...If you state that some user agents may not 
support the colors .....this would help people understand the results they 
see on the screen...just a thought

Thinking is.....some user agents might not display the CSS2 or CSS3
colors....so by placing the new CSS3 colors in their own section ...one 
could tell if the user agent supports new colors.....it was just an 
idea...not sure if it really is even an issue .... using the specification 
as a testing ground for colors .....may not be the right place...:-)
